And despite playing as much as I could on PTR, it was hard to get a grasp.
So maybe it’s these complainers too quick to judge?
I’m not sure why you felt so inclined all of a sudden but sure side with them. If you read their feedback, then you’d know all they have ever said was “I don’t want to relevel, this sucks, change it now”.
Huh most of prestiges sucks at low level and some of them even purely gives penatlies without any bonus as it need certain talent. Playing a commander which is just nerfed for what reason? Dev allows us to switch to normal commander as they know how they mess the game.
More importantly, to unlock a prestige which I want to play and if the prestige is 2nd or 3rd, then I must re-level commander to unlock earlier prestiges. Current system is totally wrong and thingkingless.
The recommended difficulty levels are:
Normal: lv1 to lv6
Hard: lv7 to lv14
Isn’t this what “we should be doing” when leveling up the Prestiges?
Granted, if you’re good, have an ally who can carry, and/or using an OP CO like Zeratul or Tychus, you could get away with shifting things one tier down (so for example, start on Hard, and go to Brutal at lv7).
In case this wasn’t a rhetorical question, it sucks. I had to do it twice. (Once on a public account that belonged to a video game lounge, and again when I reverted to my own, personal account). The 2nd time around, you have map knowledge, know the game better, and manage to learn some neat new things. However, knowing what you’re missing out on ([cough] Kahlai Ingenuity) makes it bad. It’s like when I leveled up Raynor. I took over a fully leveled up Raynor when my ally left. I was taken aback to learn that his “instant Supply Depots” come at lv8!
Word. It’s one of those missions where your towers can do both defense and offense (although make sure you have enough DPS. If trains get away, you won’t be able to chase after them).
Yeah, we should have been able to select which Prestige we are re-leveling for; rather than having it in sequential order. That’s how I understood the patch notes, and the UI when I tried it on PTR. Then was a disappointed when it wasn’t. I suppose they could still change this with a patch.
Recommended by whom? But I fully agree. Main issue with Normal was that I’m not used to that game speed anymore. And I keep forgetting that we don’t need the usual large armies to complete missions. Brutal could be started a bit earlier depending on the upgrades on that CO:
Vora needs Emergency recall lvl 13 but if you wanna go mass Void which won’t get ER unless under DP, then after TS at lvl 10, Brutal is do-able on some missions.
Karax and Swann can do VL or OE on Brutal once they have insta build (lvl 11) and Adv construction (lvl 8).
Can’t go full aggro/attack of course, but can do Brutal if not trying any map clearing.
Having said that, I’ll stick to Hard on the Random queue until lvl 15. Brutal only if I’m in a party with an ally who’s prepared to do a partial carry.
But then there will be those who compare it to doing VT in 16-17 minutes without the bonus rather than OE in 25 mins with the bonus (XP per minute effort). But that’s mind numbing and pure grinding.
Even though LilA is joking, he does eludes to an important point.
Make a friend… I mean coop is 2 players playing together (whether those 2 are the same person xD or usually not).
People carry people to help level commanders, level new commanders, and now to relevel commanders all the time. So it’s really not that difficult to try to make a friend to do that. And it would probably be worth your while if queuing up random matchmaking gets you a poor ally who needs your level 1 commander to carry them? You know? Think of solutions.
Well they aren’t exactly going to give you the same xp for every difficulty, are they? No point in playing the higher ones then to level if you can stick it on normal all the way to 15 and get the same as brutal.
Here’s the thing: no one said you haven’t. But that doesn’t change the fact that all - as in every single one - matches I had on Brutal was with a low level player. Not sure how what you said helps with that.
“Preconceived notions”… Now listen you bag of hot air. Who was talking about you? I made it clear who I was talking about - my experience, playing on Brutal. You just said you are not grinding this on Brutal.
It’s really ironic that you are calling people out for expressing their views and explaining what their experience is by replying with what your own experience is. If you’re happy with this then fine, but I don’t know why you’re bringing it in. I don’t care. I have zero issues with you liking it. But don’t negate my views and especially don’t do it by implying I was talking about you or other people who enjoy the changes.
